Today’s Quick Sip is Y Rousseau Wines’ 2014 Rosé of Tannat. I had an opportunity to try it for a recent virtual tasting put on by Protocol Wine Studio that highlighted drier styles of rosé. Every Tuesday at 9PM EST, you can join Protocol Wine Studio’s wine themed conversation by following hashtag #winestudio on Twitter.
Slightly sweet renditions of the pink juice, no doubt, have its fan base. But nowadays, drier examples are widely available, well-received, and great pairing partners to a huge array of foods. They are also flexible enough for just about any occasion – especially backyard cookouts during the warmer months. Even though rosés, either style, are largely synonymous with summer, I find that drier styles can easily be enjoyed year-round as pre-dinner refreshers or formal dinner wines – as some rosés pack complexity, character and even substance (Hello Tavel).
